Hobby Farm Life Ramblings

Written by , Posted in farming, Hobby Farming, Home and Garden, Uncategorized

Hobby Farm Life Ramblings for June 23rd. This is my account of things we had done so far on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm. During the Winter we added Horse manure to the garden plot. Yellow Straight Neck Squash have gone crazy. My goal was 52 qts for the year. I made that, gave away several buckets full to kids, my mother, and friends. We are still canning Squash today and will need to pick it again tomorrow. We planted Country Gentleman White corn, but it didn’t do well. I just discovered some of the ears have Smut on them. We had to burn them. We do plan to plant more for a second garden later. Did get some cornsilk to dry for my medicine cabinet. Stan went crazy on planting all the seeds I gathered and didn’t realize he had planted okra. It is not even a foot tall and is trying to bloom on us.Don’t think it is gonna do good either. Our Cabbage Collards are doing fine. I planted them thick and we have been eating what we thin out. I have even managed to can a few qts of them. Our Tomatoes are just beginning to make, […]

Saturday Morning Ramblings-Insurance-Home Remedy thoughts

Written by , Posted in Foods, green, Green Living, home, Home and Garden

The fire is roaring and the Coffee is hot and Strong. All the puppies are nestled together in front of the fire. The news is playing on the TV. The President is still in the News today talking about his apology concerning the statements on how we can keep our insurance. You know, the insurance companies like the one that was offered through my husband’s job that is no longer available to the employees there. Oh well we have been without insurance in the past and I guess we will deal with it again. We will use the Home Remedy methods to help us. I have been learning a lot of natural health remedies which we are incorporating into our lifestyle. After many years of not having insurance and not having the income to pay for medical bill, we decided to make our own medicines and learn to treat the illnesses. I had to learn how to fix ailments at home with what I had. I listened to my Grandmother and some other elderly people about how they treated certain ailments when they were younger. Today we have a medicinal herb garden and we collect wild plants as medicines. I […]

Monday Morning on the Hobby Farm

Written by , Posted in Home and Garden, Uncategorized, Weather

Today on the hobby farm breakfast consisted of toast, banana jam and strong coffee. I am stealing a few minutes to check emails. Then it is off to feed 14 dogs, 20 or so Chickens/ducks, 2 rabbits and one Nanny goat. This morning on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm it is cooler weather at around 50 degrees F. However, it is not the weather that makes is so cold and gloomy today. There is a depression that hits everyone here this time of year. But this year it is worse. There are no children here laughing and singing. No reason to get up and make that special hot cocoa that Tristan calls poffee. No cheery jumpy affectionate Eve. No bossy motherly Vivian and no mischievous Alex. Today, we are moving out some of the children’s things and rearranging everything in the hopes they will be returning soon. I am struggling to hold on to hope. I will open the curtains, windows and doors as it heats up outside. Then our massive cleaning to get ready for remodeling will begin. We will also start preparing for the Holiday season and winter. First comes the cleaning. Everything will be washed starting with all bed […]

‘A Beginner’s Guide to Using Floral Foam’ by author steph07

Written by , Posted in home, Home and Garden

Floral foam (also known as Oasis foam) is a very popular product which allows florists to create full and perfectly arranged floral displays. It’s used by pressing the end of the flower stems into the foam to build up the display. The foam keeps the flower in place, and the the finished result is an arrangement which doesn’t move about or lose its shape. When using real flowers, the foam is soaked in water so adds the benefit of keeping your flowers looking fresh for longer.   …… Links:  Oasis videos here Author Byline: Stephanie has years of experience with flower arrangements and writes about her hobby for magazines and blogs.  She works at the popular store Inspirations Wholesale who are suppliers for florists, selling Oasis products such as floral foam and other tools.   License: Creative CommonsLink: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/g97waJBXhcW6NCFc0EntRdMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?full-exif=true License: Image author

The Solution to Adding a Watering System

Written by , Posted in farming, Hobby Farming, Home and Garden

Having the perfect lawn or garden this year means having the right watering system for it. Now this doesn’t mean you go out in the yard or garden and dig it all up making it unsightly.  Using tripod lawn sprinkler systems can make things simple for you and can water your lawn or garden as well as the more expensive systems. There is no need for the big industrial type sprinklers which most farms use today. In combination with the right sprinkler heads, the system works like the ones used by professional farmer. Simply plant the system firmly on the ground and adjust the height so it covers the area you want watered. The Pop-up sprinkler is another sprinkler system that can be used in your yard or vegetable garden. It cost a little more and is a little more complex to install which does consist of digging up your yard or garden. It pops-up out of the ground to deliver water to your yard or gardens; then disappears back into the ground when it is finished. It leaves no unsightly equipment sticking up out of the grounds. Either one of these sprinkler systems can be coupled with a timer, […]
